The apartments themselves are nothing flash and in places dated but the location is fantastic. Within 5 mins walk are bars and restaurants, the beach, 3 tram stops and 2 supermarkets. Everything we needed.

Went there for three nights with perents. Even though its a one room apartment they put a single bed in main room/lounge room. Its mintues walk from shops, trams, resturants, luna park, and the beach. I would stay there again.

We I mean I and my partner stayed there for three nights a couple weeks ago. That is a serviced apartment which contains pretty much everything that tenants need. The check-in and check-out service was really quick. The room was clean and tidy. That apartment possesses a central location in St Kilda area which means you are able to go... More

We stay here every time we come to Melbourne, the added bonus for us is we can bring our dog. There is an additional fee for cleaning, but it is a one off no matter how long you stay, and for us it is almost as cheap as using a kennel.The new owners have done an outstanding job of refurbishment...

Got no signal on wifi. 5 cable channels, 3 of them fox sports, one sky news and one national geographic which didn't even work. Main heater was terrible, you'd get more warmth from a hair dryer. Maybe because it was trying to battle the freezing draft that was coming through the 2cm gap around the door. Modern kitchen was far... More

Thanks for your feedbacks. You leave the room so messy and full of smoking smell, our housekeep spend 3 times work to clean your room than other rooms, and we cannot put another guest in for a week, due to the strong smoking smell. The Wifi signal in our apartments is quite strong no matter where you stand. We have... More

I stayed here in April 2011 for about 4 nights. The apartment was very tiny and smelt badly of smoke. It was very noisy and we could hear traffic and pedestrians all night. It's not far from pubs and seemed to have drunks walking past yelling out randomly through the night. On the plus side it was cheap and a... More

The hotel was shabby and in need of TLC. The kitchen facilities were less than basic :/ We stayed there for 3 nights during the October break and we were less than impressed with the facilities. It should really only be a 1 star apartment. Would not recommend to anybody and we will definitely never be going back there. The... More

A perfect place to stay. Comfortable and great location - walking distance to dynamic Acland St and surrounds and to St Kilda Beach. A whisker away from Brighton and the city of Melbourne. Agreeable and helpful hosts. We will be back.
